    I actually started a thread asking why people hate Morozov awhile ago, and I got a lot of good replies even though not quite the clear answers I was looking for. It's in the trash can a few pages back, but I'm too lazy to get the link.

    That reply means absolutely nothing and I have yet to meet anyone here or in person who can clearly define the disdain for the man.
    His behavior to Wife #1 and Wife #2 in 'loving and leaving' them (#1 with baby) and serial girlfriends during and after marriages is part of it. Also his ranting at Bompard a couple of years ago (find it in the archives for yourself) are another part of why he is considered despicable by many.

    Perhaps he will double dip so to speak.

    I've always had soft spot for Elene, and if he messes with her, well, he needs to be blacklisted.

    Well, I don't like him, but hopefully this means she can actually land more than 3 triple jumps per FS.

    For more than a year and a half.

    September 2009 Japan Times Article About the Rumors

    However, as mentioned in the article, he's been coaching her since February 2006.

    Besides his sexual history mentioned upthread, there's this:

    Is Miki Ando's skating coach a Japan hater?

    At a restaurant where some Japanese were dining, Morozov, in a tipsy state, walked over to the table to announce that “the Japanese are stupid, coming all the way out just to see this kind of competition” and further added, “I hate the Japanese. If I could, I’d push a button to do to Tokyo and Osaka just like they did to Hiroshima and Nagasaki.”

    The episode was reported on the blog of Hiro Yoshida, a writer who resides in Europe and contributes articles to sports magazines. According to the blog, a friend of Yoshida happened to be dining at the restaurant and argued with Morozov, pointing out that he is coaching several Japanese skaters. Morozov’s reply was: “Miki is an exception.”

    I'm kind of happy that Elene decided to do something different, but I'm just wishing she hadn't chosen Morozov.

    It's shocking.

    Has Morozov ever had an adult female pupil who he didn't date? That is the question, imo.

    um, maybe she didn't have the option.

    I don't think Morozov and Marchei ever dated.

    I have the impression that Elena´s career is at the point, where it does not matter much who might be her coach.

    He's a complete fckwad. I still at the fact that he asked me outside for a fight, TWICE!!!!!!! in the one night.

    Having said that, Gedevanishvili promised a lot in 2006, 5 years later she has completely stagnated and he may well help her given that she does actually have the tools to be a champion. He seems to be great at instilling self belief and confidence and that's exactly what Elena needs, IMHO.
